A Christmas Present

Before Christmas I started this quilt as a present for a good friend.Unfortunately life came in the way and I couldn´t finish it in time. So now that work is a little slow I find the time to finish some quilts up.

 I wanted to do some special quilting on this one. It took me a whole day, but I like how it looks now. 
I dove into my Anna Maria Horner fabrics and chose some of my favorite. For the backround I used a red solid, to show all the dense quilting.
I used this tutorial from Missouri star quilt company for the front. I have to say I really like the tutorials, they are so easy to follow and quite inspirational.
Have a wonderful, inspirational and productive sunday.

P.S. By the way, my friend received another quilt as christmas gift.

  1. Sehr schön geworden. Ist der Quilt sehr hart geworden durch das dichte Quilten? Ich trau mich immer nicht, weil ich fürchte, das es zu hart wird.

    1. Danke! Ich finde den Quilt nicht zu hart. Aber da mag das Empfinden auch unterschiedlich sein.

    2. Das stimmt. :) Aber ich habe auch nie einen dicht gequilteten Quilt angefasst. Mein Single Girl Quilt wird ja auch etwas dichter gequiltet werden, mal sehen, wie's dort sein wird.

  2. I love the Anna Maria Horner with the gray fabric. This quilt is very pretty, nice quilting too! You have a lovely blog!

  3. This is beautiful! I enjoy your blog so much. Always inspiring, always gorgeous fabrics and color combinations. Do you use a longarm?

  4. Wow, what a lovely gift - nice to get it done, isn't it?

  5. That's just delicious! Every single detail...

  6. How do you do your quilting? I have lots of questions - especially as it is so beautiful - was the quilting on the Geese in the Forest done by a longarm?
